Book Review: A Simple Amish Christmas by Vanetta Chapman

I just finished reading A Simple Amish Christmas by Vanetta Chapman.  It was a cute, uplifting and inspiring Amish novel.

The publisher describes it this way:  "Annie Weaver always planned to return home, but the 20-year old RN has lived in Philadelphia for three years now. As her time of rumschpringe is about to come to an abrupt end, bringing for Annie an overwhelming sense of loneliness. She returns home and finds herself face-to-face with a budding romance with an Amish farmer and Annie has several important choices to make."

It explores some really important topics including family devotion, community care, love vs. duty, finding love, finding purpose, and mercy.  And it includes a lot of Amish vocabulary, so I was grateful for the dictionary in the back of the book.  All of the "lessons" are beautifully woven though Chapman's light-hearted fictional tale.

I would recommend this book for any female reader age 15+.

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
